|Shiny new passport.|
The diplomatic passport though does not mean I would have diplomatic immunity wherever I travel. Rather, it really just signifies I am traveling under official government business.
Diplomatic immunity is only granted on a bilateral basis between countries. So if I am to be posted to a particular country, then a listing is sent from our embassy to the partner country declaring those on diplomatic business and agreed upon by the other. Only at that point is diplomatic immunity granted.
Still, having a black passport definitely is pretty cool!
